Mariners Take 1st Series Against Rangers

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Jose Lopez belted a three-run homer and number-five starter Miguel Batista got his first save in three years to close out Seattle's 4-1 win over Texas.

The Mariners have been forced into a closer-by-committee
situation after All-Star reliever J.J. Putz was put on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a ribcage injury.

Winning pitcher Carlos Silva tossed three-hit ball over seven
innings allowing Ben Broussard's leadoff homer in the sixth.

The loss went to Jason Jennings, who gave up four runs on five
hits in five innings.
